Hallgarten Wines strengthens its Spanish portfolio with Ribera del Duero addition
Hallgarten & Novum Wines, has announced the introduction of Ribera del Duero producer, Bodegas Resalte de Peñafiel, to its portfolio, available for the UK on- and off-trade. From the Peñafiel sub-region of Ribera del Duero, the winery specialises in the production of single-variety wines made from Tempranillo.
The range of four wines added to the Hallgarten Spanish portfolio includes; Peña Roble Joven, Resalte Vendimia Seleccionada, Resalte Crianza (2014 vintage: Wine Spectator, 91 points; Guía Peñín, 92 Points) and Peña Roble Reserva. Bodegas Resalte de Peñafiel joins Hallgarten’s already extensive Spanish portfolio, which was strengthened in 2018 with the introduction of 12 new producers from 10 different regions, bringing the total to 23 producers from 15 regions.
Hallgarten & Novum Wines Head of Buying, Steve Daniel, comments; “I am delighted to strengthen our Spanish portfolio even further with the addition of these four wines from Bodegas Resalte de Peñafiel. The winery has an ultra-modern perspective on how wine should be made and their key to success is the vast vineyard area they have at their fingertips to work with, allowing them to express a wide range of Tempranillo styles. They are able to select grapes from different parts of the region, but all with high-altitude to retain freshness and fruit character.
“In 2018 we added real diversity to our Spanish portfolio, from the relatively small wine producing region of the Canary Islands to the well-established region of Galicia. Now, with the addition of Bodegas Resalte de Peñafiel we have ticked all the boxes in this incredible winemaking nation.”
Bodegas Resalte de Peñafiel sources its grapes from 80 hectares vines - among them some of the finest vineyards in Ribera – which deliver a diversity of terroirs, enabling them to achieve remarkable complexity in their wines.
Since its inception, Bodegas Resalte de Peñafiel has adopted the philosophy of making fine wines by combining state-of-the-art winemaking with traditional methods in the vineyards to craft modern, complex and balanced wines.
